Who is Your God?

Acts 17:24 God, who made the world and everything in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands.

Every person no matter their position, belief, religion, age, gender, race, has a god in their life. The question is who is that god. Is it the Almighty God, or an invented god which is often times that person who looks themselves in the mirror.

The vast majority of the fallen world has a god unto themselves. This god is subjective, has an unstable moral compass, and whether you believe he exists or not is guided by none other than Satan himself. This fictional god’s doctrines are “you be you”, “be your own truth”, “you only live once”, “be your best you”, “believe in yourself” as each doctrine will focus on self. You see this with famous people, politicians, common people, and even those who call themselves “Christian”.

Go to any bookstore, if they still exist, and in the self-help section you will see book after book, teaching this secular self god doctrine. What are the fruits of this religion? Narcissism, selfishness, deadly pride, bitterness, loneliness, depression, anxiety, stress, anger, and vast ignorance. With each of its doctrines producing another deathly fruit.

The fact is, if you are a god unto yourself, you have no real moral compass, you are unstable in every way. Now you might be able to give the impression by worldly success that this fallen religion is making you happy, but internally you know it is fleeting. Some really do stupidly believe they beat the Almighty God at His own sovereignty. That they cured their own cancer, they achieved their success by their self driven motivation, they have a great family because they worked harder than most. Only then to realize in the end, darkness and torment in a place called hell.

Some who do believe in a higher power, the actual God, believe He can be harnessed and controlled. We see this in world religions where they attempt to say God ONLY dwells in temples made by humans. So outside that “church”, they believe they are free of Him never realizing that God is everywhere all at once. No one is outside of His sovereignty. Yes, even in evil circumstances, God is in control in that He is restraining a even worse evil which could take place. Some have this notion that evil in effect controls God? That is not the God of Scripture!

And once you get to this understanding, a real healthy fear of God should be realized. That in every aspect of human life, God is in control, completely sovereign. Now I am not saying He is responsible or that He causes evil which is the ignorant strawman used against His sovereignty. The premise is that humans born after Adam are totally rotten in sin, and evil/lust is their natural desire. God doesn’t have to make one do evil, you desire is evil. NOW see it as God restraining what you are actually capable of, and you might just understand His mercy and grace.

So who is your God? Again, everyone has a god, the question is who that god is. Because the truth is, there is an Almighty God, sovereign, omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent who will never be defeated. His ways are not human ways. His justice is perfect, His mercy and grace are never-ending, He never breaks a promise, never changes a promise, never will be defeated by evil, the God who can snuff you out in second if it was His will to do so. Lastly He is a God of pure LOVE, not human type of love, but His love is perfect, it never changes, it holds no grudge, it is always unconditional. A love SO GREAT that He sent His only Son Jesus Christ to die for YOU if you so believe in Him, so that you could live eternally with Him. A pure sacrifice for you! He created the whole universe with just one spoken word.

Or will you continue to believe you are the god of your life? Compare what I said about the actual Almighty God to yourself, what do you see?
